Help Me (Gussow.mov)
It's hard to overstate the importance of this solo, and this song. It's not just a top-25 desert-island cut for blues harp players around the world, but it's arguably the one blues harp classic that other blues players--guitarists, vocalists, you name it--all know. It comes up at virtually every jam session. It is part of the blues world's common stock.
Technical challenges include brisk triplets in a 3-against-2 rhythm; warbles; staccato (chuck-chuck) chording; and a bit of tricky timing. This video takes you inside the guts of Sonny Boy's style.
Harp key: B-flat

Without doubt the best harmonica video tutorial I have ever used, and I�ve used plenty.
I�d been struggling with this thrilling solo for a very long time, on and off for 3 years, since I first started playing harp and progress has been very slow.
Adam�s video takes the all painfull hunting and pecking to find the right notes out of the equation right from the off.
He breaks the 12 bar solo down, bar by bar and note by note. Also giving a great insight into his own techniques when going through the woodshed process.
Small bite size practice routines are shown and make it very simple to work on parts of the solo before trying to build it all back together into the finished article.
For anyone trying to demystify this Classic blues song, it�s all here.
I progressed more in two days with this lesson than I have in the last 3 years of struggling and frustration.
I look forward to trying out many more of these tutorials.
